Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I have a quick question

Did I just spent an hour filling my CV just to be told I have to pay $19 for it to be searchable?


Now that's annoying. I mean, I realize that stack overflow needs funding and all, but please let people know before they fill they CVs.

No, I think it isn't (I missed it at least) ... – droope Dec 18 '10 at 12:01
@droope I just tested it with a new account and it definitely is always visible. (I might have overlooked it too, but I don't think the team can be blamed here - it is pretty clear) – Pëkka Dec 18 '10 at 12:04
Yeah, i've looked back and it's pretty clear. – droope Dec 20 '10 at 11:30

I now understand ( I have read the FAQ ).

The fee is in order to prove that you are relly interested in getting a job.

Sorry (still very annoying) :P
